The Lomo LC-A+ and the Lomography Color Negative 400 film are two of our favorite companions. When they're together, they're bound to create unique, iconic Lomo-look shots that everyone covets. French photographer Vince Perraud is one of those who know their potential power. And so, he took the camera and film with him for his escapade to the Dolomites. Discover his interview and his photos for a great getaway.
Hello Vince, how did you become a photographer?
Hello! I'm getting a bit old! When I was younger, I used to BMX, I was very into it but after a bad injury, I had to stop for one year. That's how I bought my first camera in order to be able to still hang out with my friends... Little by little, I got published in specialized magazines! It all happened by chance, I never had the ambition to become a photographer.
What are your sources of inspiration?
Ohh my sources are very diverse but I would first say, my friends! I have the chance to be surrounded by very inspiring and creative persons so it helps.
What do you like taking pictures of?
Hum, I would say what surrounds me! So I like to go on adventures!
Are you more into analogue or digital? What's your favorite camera?
I would say digital! Let's face the truth, I mainly take pictures for advertisements to make a living and it's sometimes complicated to do it in analogue, but I continue to take analogue pictures for a lot of my personal projects or when I hang out in the streets... I rarely go out without a camera! And for the camera, I'm in love with a lot of them actually! In digital, I would say the amazing Fuji GFX100 and I have a weakness for the Pentax 6x7 and the Yashica T4.
You photographed your summer with the Lomo LC-A+, tell us a bit more about your adventures!
I have to say that it's a bit particular as I was not in a shooting period... I was on holiday in Burgundy so not very productive but after I went to shoot in the Dolomites, the landscapes are amazing!
How was your trip with our analogue camera?
As it's a compact camera, it's very easy to always have it with you so it's a very great travel companion!!!
Any advice to use the Lomo LC-A+?
I would say to shoot a lot with it! It's quite multi-skilled.
Do you have some news you would like to share?
I have just published my book « Get In » and I'm pretty happy... It's a travel diary with pictures taken all over the world.
